The week ahead

This week in Parliament there will be debates on pensions, local government finance, police grants, the EU referendum and housing, and Kerry will be speaking as shadow Environment Secretary in a debate on the future of the UK fishing industry. Kerry will have a series of meetings in Westminster, and will be appearing on Wednesday’s Daily Politics show, commenting on Prime Minister’s Questions.

Parliament will rise for half-term recess on 11th February and will sit again from February 22nd. During recess Kerry has a number of visits and meetings planned in her constituency, including her regular advice surgery. On Monday 15th she will be hosting an event in Bristol for local groups and people working on food and environmental issues, to consult them in her role as shadow Environment Secretary and look at how Bristol could help influence future policy. She will also be visiting Slimbridge with the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, and, on 20th February, making the opening speech at the Labour Animal Welfare Society’s Annual Conference.

Just an update to yesterday’s post on mitochrondial disease.

Just before recess I was at a WWF event in Parliament on environmental issues, with rather a large panel of speakers – all male, all white and, with one exception, all middle-aged.
